ELIZABETH RUTH ERRICKSON
Elizabeth Ruth Errickson, 84, of Millville passed away on Sunday afternoon, April 17, 2011, at the Cumberland Manor nursing home.
She was born in Deepwater to the Rev. Leslie and Mary Woolson on March 10, 1927. She attended grammar school in Deepwater, and became a resident of Port Elizabeth in 1941. She graduated from Millville Memorial High School in 1944 and became a telephone operator with AT&T (now Verizon). She retired after 39 years as an assistant manager of Central Administration. One of her inspirations was the continuing closeness of the other switchboard operators on High Street in Millville during the World War II years, which developed into the "Telephone Pioneers of America." She was very creative in her crocheting and enjoyed reading, sports and traveling.
Predeceased by her husband, Charles Errickson, they were avid antique car enthusiasts, and were members of the Metropolitan Owners Car Club of North America, the Tri State Chapter Metropolitan Car Club, Cohanzick Antique Car Club, and the Garden State 50s Car Club. Charles and Elizabeth were a remarkable couple and had 57 years of happiness and enjoyed being "snowbirds," with 17 winters in Jupiter, Fla.
She is survived by her sister, Jennie V. Lloyd of Ocala, Fla.; brother, Robert Woolson of Millville; stepson, C. Wayne Errickson of Millville; six nieces and families.
Services will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday in the Rocap Shannon Memorial Funeral Home.
